The Inner Wheel Club of the Philippines Incorporated is a dynamic organization of committed women bound by friendship and dedicated to selfless service to humanity. It is an exclusive women’s organization started in Manchester, England, in May 1924, celebrating its 100 years of friendship and service. The Inner Clubs of the Philippines is divided by districts and the District 378 is composed of 10 clubs in Quezon City namely; IWC of Holy Spirit, IWC of Holy Spirit New Generation, IWC of Greater Lagro, IWC of Paraiso, IWC of Fairview, IWC of SFDM, IWC of QC Diamonds, IWC of Quezon City, IWC of Turquoise and lastly, IWC of Vista Real Classica.

Julie Benedicto, a business consultant and marketing associate of Plexus Systems Inc. and in multiple businesses. These women are not only best in managing their businesses, but they are kindhearted and willing to help the community and the marginalized sector of society. On October 27, 2023, the IWCPI District 378 launched the “Trashion Show,” a benefit gala for cancer warriors at the National Children’s Hospital in Quezon City.

The 10 clubs from District 378 of IWCPI’s commitment to community outreach takes a heartfelt turn as members embark on visits to local hospitals, spreading joy and support to those battling cancer. With compassion as their guide, they organize a special event dedicated to the brave individuals fighting this formidable adversary – the cancer warriors. It’s a testament to the club’s dedication to making a positive difference in the lives of those confronting the challenges of cancer. Each club helped to make the event successful under the leadership of District Chair Emlyn Santos. These women are continuously helping our countrymen not only in Metro Manila areas but also in different provinces.

This event targeted multiple projects. The gowns made from trash are made by our PDL from BJMP Malabon Women’s Dormitory, under the leadership of Atty. Wena Fe Dalagan, the Jail Warden of Malabon City Jail. The Atty. said the cost of the gowns will go through the PDL (Person Deprived of Liberty) livelihood to support their family outside the jail. Through this project trashion show, we also addressed one of the problems inside the jail, which is their daily waste like coffee sachets, plastic bags, rice sacks, and others. They design and make the gowns out of trash. The gowns made are walked down the runway by the models, the models are the Presidents of each club themselves. These eco-friendly garments, not only make a powerful statement about environmental consciousness but also showcase the boundless creativity within the people that designed and made the gown.

At the said event, we also raised funds for the 60 cancer warriors in the National Children’s Hospital through dinner for a cause. A Gala Night for a cause touched the hearts of the attendees, for the event was organized with great love and passion in dedication to the unsung heroes of the battle against cancer and the courageous cancer warriors at the National Children’s Hospital. Also inside the event are some booths where the PDL sold their handiworks and some craft as extra income to themselves.

After the said event, the IWCPI District 378 took a visit again to the Hospital to give them the funds and extra donations they have received from the event organized. The donations are plenty and very useful to the cancer warriors as the district donated vitamins, milk, water purification system, wheelchairs, toys for the young cancer warriors, food packs, some fruits and biscuits and oral hygiene kits. They are also given school supplies so as they are healing at the hospital they can also learn. The funds raised will play a pivotal role in ensuring that cancer warriors receive the best health care and support they deserve. The event serves as a beacon of hope, combining entertainment, encouragement, and camaraderie. From uplifting performances to personalized gestures, the club’s initiative not only brightens the spirits of the cancer warriors but also underscores the profound impact that unity and compassion can have in the face of adversity.
